__________________________________________________________________ Q and A
- How can permanent makeup help women look younger?
One of the most exhilarating rewards in performing permanent makeup procedures is the ability to make a woman’s face appear younger.
Lifting the Brows
Even with younger clients, genetics can play a significant role. If a family trait is that their brows tend to hang low toward their lashes, removing a few hairs from the underbelly of their brows and adding a few hairs to the top of their brows and/or their arch, will open their eyes much wider, creating an overall brightness to their eyes and entire face. A millimeter is a mile when applying makeup to the face, so just a few millimeters of lift can make a huge difference.
In middle-aged women, this artistry can literally take years off of her face. For most women, eyebrows lower with age! These lifting techniques can be so dramatic, we consider this to be the non-surgical facelift. It can be shockingly beautiful and yet appear completely natural.
Addressing the Eyes
Every woman does not have a large eyelid. Again, genetics play a big role in the way our eyes are set. Adding a lash enhancement or a lash tattoo or even a small eyeliner can create the appearance of a much bigger eye and accentuate a small eyelid. It is quite a dramatic difference and certainly more youthful.
A woman in her forties can benefit greatly with eyeliner and eyebrows. Achieving a bit of a lift in her brows and adding an eyeliner with a slight lift on the outer corner of the eyes creates a much more youthful appearance.
My idea of applying permanent makeup is to replace features that were once there or to create features that naturally flatter a woman’s face.
Women love fuller lips! Every client, younger or older can benefit from a lip color procedure. This often becomes their favorite of all their permanent makeup procedures.
Not every client will opt for an injectable filler. This is not for every woman. However, every woman wants fuller lips and this can be created, easily, with permanent makeup.
For the younger women or those that still have that youthful white border above their top lip, (Vermillion ridge) you can place color as far as the crest of this ridge but no further or it will appear unnatural. Remembering that a millimeter is a mile, you can see the dramatic difference in adding these few millimeters to a lip, even when drawing this on with a lip pencil.
For the older women, this is more dramatic. The ridge is gone but generally, there is a trace of it and replacing this area is so dramatic and youthful. Clients will often call us just to say that their lips are their favorite procedure and they can’t stop looking in the mirror at themselves.
How is this exhilarating for a skilled practitioner? When the practitioner draws the client’s makeup on, they look into the mirror and they see how much younger they are about to look.
Latest trends in permanent makeup
Of course, microblading has swept the entire globe and seems to be more palatable for those that were concerned that permanent makeup would not appear as natural as they wanted. Microblading is more slight in its application and greatly reduced the fears of permanent eyebrows. The downside, it won’t last as long and many are ill-trained with these 2-day courses that allow people with no experience to hang a shingle immediately after. This is a dangerous practice. Be sure to inquire that your practitioner has had a primary training and already experienced prior to taking this advanced technique.
Microbladed eyebrows can be mimicked with the use of a machine by a highly skilled permanent makeup artist and will most likely, last longer.
Every woman is not a candidate for microblading. Thick, oily skin will not show the hair strokes nor will very light pigment colors. An experienced practitioner will evaluate each of their clients before proceeding.
This is a combination of hair strokes created by microblading, another hand-tool method such as Softap, or a machine and then shading in between the hair strokes for a softer appearance. Since strong hair-strokes do not suit everyone’s face or taste, this combo method has great appeal.
Much like the Ombre hair color that is popular, Ombre Brows have become popular. They are lighter at the front and the top of the brow and then build intensity toward the bottom. It is a pretty effect and again, not for everyone.
Which is a new buzz-word for lash enhancements that have been performed for years. This procedure provides a natural frame that is tattooed between the lashes and not on the eyelid. Women love this since it reduces the need for mascara and creates the appearance of more lashes. This procedure is also popular among men with light or slight eyelashes.
Gloss and Go for Lips
This procedure provides a blush of color for those women that do not wear a lip liner but want some color to their lips. They can simply, Gloss and Go for a soft, natural and flattering appearance.
This procedure is great for women that do wear a lip-line, although it doesn’t need to be contrasting but rather give shape to their lips. Starting with a lip line and blending that line into the interior of the lip also gives the client the ability to Gloss and Go. This is best for natural and earthier colors and is quite beautiful and extremely youthful. Women love this effect.
